"I feel that in every girl there is a spirit, a wild pixie, that if set free would run and dance in grassy fields until the end of time."
The more I read through To Kill a Mockingbird, the more I see my own Jean Louise in Scout Finch. My girl needs freedom-freedom to laugh and sing and dance and twirl. Freedom to say hello to every person we pass on our walks. Freedom to express her feelings when they overwhelm her.
If there is an open field or a big room, Scout will dance. She will dance and twirl without a care as to who is watching. She will hold up her skinny arms as high as she can lift them and leap as far as her tiny legs will rise. I love this wild pixie of mine and I hope I can always give her the grassy fields she needs to run and dance in.
